Serigraphy by Martín Revolo
Luna Roja (or blood moon) is a serigraphy; a technique also known as silk-screen, screen, or serigraph printing. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.
The artist “Shulka”
The artist “Shulka”, as Martín Revolo likes to call himself, resides in all of Martín’s work. Though each viewer may take a different meaning from his images, all have experienced a part of the narrative that is Shulka himself.
It is not necessarily the aesthetics of the image that defines his style, but rather his ability to unmask the “personal mythologies” of both the artist Shulka and the viewer. Such narratives can be intimate, ironic, or detached, but they are always thoughtfully incorporated into his work.
Telling a story
“In my attempt to tell a story, I create imagery that is both real and surreal laced in fantasy. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious; creating and transferring those thoughts to an image. It is from that process that I find myself being most present in me.” – Shulka
